Academic Recovery Program
Due to changes in academic policy, the Academic Recovery Program is in the process of being revised effective Spring 2014. For information on the new academic policy, please click here.
Academic Warning (Tier 1)
A student is placed on Academic Warning if the student’s cumulative GPA falls below 2.0. The purpose of Academic Warning is to ensure students have the skills and tools necessary to be academically successful. Students are required to meet with a OneStop Advisor to discuss their situation and complete the Tier 1 Academic Recovery Program (ARP). Students on Academic Warning are only allowed to enroll in 14 hours or one class per term during summer. The Tier 1 ARP includes, but is not limited to, completing the Course Success Strategy Worksheet, and completing the Student Update form. The Tier 1 ARP requires a two semester commitment to ensure that the student remains successful.
Academic Suspension (Tier 2)
Suspended students may have two options for returning under the Tier 2 program. Students who fail to notify us by the deadline will be automatically placed in Option 2. Regardless of which option is chosen, if the student re-enrolls at UNC Asheville, then he or she must complete the Tier 2 Academic Recovery Program.
Option 1: Request to enroll at UNC Asheville with participation in the Tier 2 Academic Recovery Program (ARP). Students approved for an Academic Dismissal Appeal will automatically be placed in the Tier 2 ARP. Student requests for enrollment in the Tier 2 ARP will be reviewed and students notified by email with confirmation of their acceptance and conditions of their continued enrollment.
Option 1 entails completing the Tier 2 ARP while enrolled in the Making Academic Progress (MAP) course. This option includes attending and participating in a weekly class along with full compliance for the Tier 2 ARP Agreement. The purpose of the Tier 2 ARP Agreement is to ensure that the student has all of the tools necessary to be an active and engaged member of the UNC Asheville academic community. Students are limited to 14 hours plus the 1 hour required MAP course. The Tier 2 ARP includes, but is not limited to, mandatory meetings with instructors, course updates, participation in tutoring and academic workshops and weekly attendance/participation in the MAP class. The Tier 2 ARP requires at least two semesters to complete and students must sign the Tier 2 ARP Contract.
Option 2: Serve your suspension and re-enroll in or after the next semester, participating in the ARP at that time. If you choose this option and have already registered for the upcoming semester, your schedule will be dropped. After your suspension, you will be eligible to re-enroll by submitting an Application for Readmission to the Office of the Registrar by the stated deadline for the semester of re-enrollment. Students on academic suspension are not eligible to attend another institution while serving their suspension and have the credits transfer back to UNC Asheville.
If you are a residential student who will be serving your suspension (Option 2), you will need to remove all items and check out of your residence hall room by the deadline. Contact the Offices of Residential Education and Housing Operations at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
